Showing: Francesco Igory Deiana “Turmoil” @ Ruttkowski;68

Back to Cologne 5 years since his debut show with the gallery, Francesco Igory Deiana is currently showing Turmoil @ Ruttkowski;68.

San Francisco’s Park Life will be hosting a July 15th opening for a collaborative exhibition between Francesco Igory Deiana and Atelier Pica Pica entitled Meeting On The Shore.
